Overview

This course is an engineering technologist-level program which is similar in nature to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (C09066) but does not provide full professional engineering status.

This course provides students with the skills required at an engineering technologist level – and hence the ability to work with professional engineers – without developing full professional engineering competencies.

Career options

Career options include positions in engineering teams across the full spectrum of engineering activities. Specific career options depend on the major chosen.

Course intended learning outcomes

A.0 Engineering and IT take place within the larger context of society and the environment, which encompasses social, economic and sustainability needs
A.1 Identify, interpret and analyse stakeholder needs
A.2 Establish priorities and goals
A.3 Identify constraints, uncertainties and risk of the system (social, cultural, legislative, environmental, business etc.)
A.4 Apply principles of sustainability to create viable systems
A.5 Apply systems thinking to understand complex system behaviour, including interactions between components and with other systems (social, cultural, legislative, environmental, business etc.)
B.0 Engineering and IT practice focuses on problem-solving and design where artifacts are conceived, created, used, modified, maintained and retired
B.1 Identify and apply relevant problem-solving methodologies
B.2 Design components, systems and/or processes to meet required specification
B.3 Synthesise alternative/innovative solutions, concepts and procedures
B.4 Apply decision-making methodologies to evaluate solutions for efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability
B.5 Implement and test solution
B.6 Demonstrate research skills
C.0 Abstraction, modelling, simulation and visualisation inform decision-making, and are underpinned by mathematics, as well as basic and discipline sciences
C.1 Apply abstraction, mathematics and/or discipline fundamentals to analysis, design and operation
C.2 Develop models using appropriate tools such as computer software, laboratory equipment and other devices
C.3 Evaluate model applicability, accuracy and limitations
D.0 Graduates must have capabilities for self-organisation, self-review, personal development and lifelong learning
D.1 Manage own time and processes effectively by prioritising competing demands to achieve personal goals (Manage self)
D.2 Reflect on personal and professional experiences to engage in independent development beyond formal education for lifelong learning
E.0 Engineering and IT practice involves the coordination of a range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary activities to arrive at problem and design solutions
E.1 Communicate effectively in ways appropriate to the discipline, audience and purpose
E.2 Work as an effective member or leader of diverse teams within a multilevel, multidisciplinary and multicultural setting
E.3 Identify and apply relevant project management methodologies
F.0 Graduates must possess skills, knowledge and behaviours to operate effectively in culturally diverse workplaces and a changing global environment
F.1 Be able to conduct critical self-review and performance evaluation against appropriate criteria as a primary means of tracking personal development needs and achievements
F.2 Appreciate ethical implications of professional practice
F.3 Understand cross-cultural issues (regions or workplaces)
F.4 Be aware of global perspectives (needs, rules/regulations, and specifications)

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed an Australian Year 12 qualification, Australian Qualifications Framework Diploma, or equivalent Australian or overseas qualification at the required level.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.0 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 500-549 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 60-78 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 50-57; or CAE: 169-175.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Pathway course

Successful completion of the UTS Insearch Diploma of Engineering with no more than two subject failures guarantees admission to the Bachelor of Engineering Science with up to 48 credit points of recognition of prior learning.

Assumed knowledge

HSC Mathematics Extension 1; Physics; and English (Standard).

English (Advanced) is recommended. For the civil engineering major, Chemistry is recommended. For the software engineering major, a sound knowledge of the fundamentals of programming is recommended.

Recognition of prior learning

Students who have previously undertaken relevant study at a recognised tertiary education institution may be eligible for recognition of prior learning (RPL) if the subjects completed are deemed by the faculty to be equivalent to subjects in the course. Study completed more than 10 years prior to the date of admission cannot be recognised. Limits apply to the number of credit points of RPL granted.

Course duration and attendance

The course can be completed in three years of full-time study.

Course structure

Students must complete 144 credit points, distributed in the following way:

  • core program (including the Project BEngSc): 42 credit points
  • field of practice (major): 84 credit points; and
  • electives: 18 credit points.

The degree may be taken with a designated major which students usually select at entry. Opportunities exist in later years for students to apply to change majors. Students may choose not to take a major, instead taking a general program comprising subjects from different areas of engineering as approved by the Director, Teaching and Learning.

Levels of award

The Bachelor of Engineering Science may be awarded with distinction, credit or pass.

Transfer between UTS courses

Students enrolled in the Bachelor of Engineering Science may (dependent upon performance and admission requirements) be allowed to transfer to the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (C09066). This involves completion of the remaining Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) subjects. The subject 48001 Project BEngSc is not credited from this course to any Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree.
